On Friday 15 September, Rotary Ridderkerk - de Waal held a golf tournament and auction to promote awareness for children with congenital diaphragmatic hernia and raise money for a new treatment that is being developed at Radboudumc by Willeke Daamen (Biochemistry) and Sanne Botden (Paediatric Surgery), theme Reconstructive and regenerative medicine. The patient organization “Platform CHD”, headed by Frank Meijer, fully supports and empowers this research strategy.

At the end of the day, a check worth € 27,130 was handed over to the Radboudumc and Platform CHD to further develop a new patch for closure of the thoracic diaphragm.
